Music Is For Everybody
" . . . My goal is for each student to be able to join other musicians and confidently conduct a meaningful, musical conversation."
SAXOPHONE [beginner - advanced]
I believe that prospective saxophone students substantially benefit from clarinet study--prior to the saxophone--of at least one year.
CLARINET [beginner - advanced intermediate]
FLUTE [beginner - advanced intermediate]
DRUM SET [beginner - intermediate]
I use developmentally appropriate learning games to nurture your child's musical talent and to encourage perfect pitch. This skill is one I believe can be learned and is highly prized amongst musicians. The earlier in life this training begins, the better.
ENSEMBLES [beginner - advanced]
Coaching is available for the following groups:
jazz big band / chamber jazz / saxophone ensemble / salsa and latin / rock, pop or funk / pit orchestra / horn section / community and stage bands
CLASSES [beginner - advanced]
Much of the material I teach privately can easily be adapted to classroom teaching.
EVERYBODY ELSE [beginner - advanced]
The foundational skills required for playing music well are nearly universal.
